BJ’s Wholesale Club Plans Columbia Store


BJs Columbia SCBJ’s Wholesale Club has submitted a proposal to bring its only location to South Carolina, planned for the Northeast Columbia area near the Village at Sandhill.

The membership-only warehouse club’s plan is under review by the Richland County Planning Commission, Deputy Director Geonard Price confirmed. The Westborough, Mass.-based retail company still has revisions to make to its proposal, he said.

BJ’s spokesperson Maria Fruci had no specifics on the proposal, but did say the company was “actively pursuing a location in Columbia.”

The plan calls for the company to take over the principal site at 1117 Sparkleberry Lane Extension, currently the location of a vacant, 200,000-square-foot manufacturing facility that’s situated on 14.1 acres. Other surrounding parcels also came in with the proposal, Price said.

The property is currently listed for sale by Colliers International on, a commercial real estate website. The asking price is $4 million. The plan is for BJ’s to tear down the building and construct a new store, Price said.
